Onions got him for next to nothing in the 2nd as well. Not good.
Compton on the other hand, another double ton, he's got ~900 runs in 5 matches this season...mind you, he did get 236 against Cardiff Uni. Don't see him replacing Strauss in any case for this season, though.
Not even I'm optimistic enough to think that Compton is going to get anywhere near the England side, he's been vital to Somerset though this year, the fact he's willing to take his time to play himself in has been the key.
Our Physio room seems to be getting busy, with not only Trescothick, but Kirby, Dibble and Hussain in there, with Philander hanging about too. God knows if we actually have any pace bowlers to turn too for our next Championship game.
Being a big fan of English domestic, it's a pity that it's not shown on tv in India. Star cricket does broadcast a few matches but very rarely. Does Sky Sport broadcast the matches on regular basis or very rarely too? There are a couple of matches going on at the moment, are you guys following it on cricinfo or is it actually being shown on tv?
Division one looks strong this year with the promotion of both London counties Surrey and Middlesex last year. Will Lancs struggle to repeat their heroics of last season? In all likelihood yes. They have signed Ashwell Prince as there overseas player which may bolster the always potentially fragile batting line up although it didn?t do much good against Sussex. At some point in the summer I think Old Trafford will become available again for 4 day games.

Bell gets a duck at Hove, can't imagine batting is that easy though, delayed start, very wet couple of days and there's a breeze about. Bopara hit a ton the other day, I see. Morgan is completely out of the picture for England this season imo, more interested in the IPL than getting his place back.
